Like Dinner at Home, if Your Parents were Great Cooks

Our hotel recommended this charming local place, and we loved it. It is a small mère and père place specializing in real Bruges cooking. Every course was excellent, from the homemade bread through to the delightful desserts. My husband loved his baby lobster in a tasty broth, while my duck was... read more

The couple who own this restaurant, are absolutely delightful. FOOD BEYOND MY EXPECTATION, beautifully presented, exquisitely laid tables, pure DOWNTON ABBEY setting. Ladies room also on high quality standard. Just give yourself time to find this well hidden gemstone, will certainly be returning. Booking essential

came here on the advice of other trip advisors. our starter was shrimp bisque which had a very strong fishy taste; wife couldn't eat hers. to make matters worse we asked to share one portion, and they charged us 2 euros for that privilege. we both got fish for our main dishes; my cod was good, but we both thought...

Excellent restaurant with good Belgian food. Visited as part of our anniversary week end in Bruges. Nice surprise at the end of the meal with an indoor firework and extra sorbet.

Amazing. The ambience was perfect and the food some of the best I have ever tasted; I am still dreaming about the north sea shrimp bisque. Cannot recommend it enough. Make sure that you book though, many people were turned away.

My husband and I dined in this small and beautiful restaurant in Bruges this past weekend and were utterly delighted with the beautifully presented and delicious food, from Erica's home made bread to the pretty as a picture and supremely delicious desserts and the freshest fish we had in between! All courses were prepared with amazing skill and michelin star... More

A small restaurant in the heart of Bruges. It's family-owned and has a small but comfortable dining room. The food was all absolutely delicious.

De Stove is a small restaurant located near the market in Bruges. We arrived for our 7:00 reservation and were warmly great by Erica who is part owner along with her husband who does all the cooking. Erica handles the front of house and does this seemlessly and with much enthusiasm, taking great care to describe each dish. My wife... More

We enjoyed the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings which was really good, and excellent value at around 70 EUR pp. The restaurant is always fully booked so do reserve well in advance. We loved the fact that they hadn't squeezed in lots of tables and kept the place very quiet. The restaurant is fine dining but not at... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening meal here, having been recommended by our hotel. It is best to book a table as the restaurant is very popular. Husband and wife team, Chef Gino and front of house Erica have been running the bistro for nearly 30 years. The menu changes monthly. The bistro is small with only 8 tables and has... More
